I have to assume that you will be flying to Penticton because if you are driving you will see mountains on the way in.

From Penticton the best route would be to drive south to Osoyoos then head east on Highway #3. Turn around at the top of the hill (Anarchist Pass) and look west where you should see snow on the Mountain peaks in the background. Only works on a nice sunny day. https://goo.gl/maps/KZj3a

In Penticton you could drive up to Lost Moose Lodge for lunch and get a view of Apex Ski Resort. https://goo.gl/maps/4RkHj

also for a bit different there is the drive to Cathedral Lake area https://goo.gl/maps/o0azj http://cathedrallakes.ca/

http://www.sylranch.com/ is a winery with restaurant and a view over Skaha and Okanagan Lake that doesn't quit. Good for lunch.
